Breakaway


I want to leave
I want to live
my life the way I want
I want to become independent
I want to be free
I want to be on my own
Why should I live in a place
were I can't be heard?
So my heart filled with hope
I spread my wings and fly
beyond sky and
into the clouds
I never again
want to go back
I never look back
not even for the last time.

    Beautiful poem! Good. The question is, in practical life, can we as we want to be! Very difficult - almost impossible! (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
